Chemotherapy Ineffective 97% of The Time

In the video Dr. Peter Glidden cites the study that concludes better than 97% of the time, chemotherapy does not work. Yet itís one of the main treatments in the battle against cancer. Dr. Glidden explains why thatís still the case.

Can Pot Treat Cancer Without The Devastating Effects of Chemotherapy?

Research shows THC and other compounds found only in marijuana don't just soothe symptoms; they can shrink tumors and slow the spread of cancer.

But how do they obtain this oil? At the life of the Emu? Will that be the next species on our "endangered list" of animals.

Debbie, the Emu is commonly farmed, so not likely to become extinct.

Another cruel product obtained by the killing of animals - sad.

Untrue, because Cancer is a fungus and can not kill fungus with any oil, are they mental!!

What gives our species the right to exploit another species no matter how beneficial it is to us?

I hope they find another treatment that will work or the emu will become extinct.

interesting....emus are farmed for the meat, and the oil is just a byproduct. It is good they have found uses for it. The oil is supposedly very good for your skin.
